[drum line sfx: rocket] quicken loans. proud supporter of college athletics. [sfx: rocket (whisper)] hello, everyone. i'm dana perino along with kimberly guilfoyle, eric bolling, greg gutfeld and this is "the five." we are just two hours away from president-elect donald trump's second stop of his post election thank you tour, this time in fayetteville, north carolina. you never know what he might say. stay tuned. remember the big news he revealed in cincinnati last week. >> i don't want to tell you this because i want to save the suspense. we are going to appoint mad dog mattis as our secretary of
defense. keep it inside the room. but that's what we have and he's our best. they say he's the closest thing to general george patton that we have and it's about time. it's about time. >> retired marine general james mattis will be formally announced as mr. trump's pick. earlier today i spoke to senate staffers who said they believe that waiver that is necessary for him to be able to get the confirmation because it's not been seven years since his retirement, that they think that's going to be able to sail through, no problem. >> i hope so. this is an excellent choice. i'm really looking forward to the vice presidential pick as well. a lot of people in the military have tremendous respect for him. he's got a cool nickname, mad dog. i'm mad dog and my boy is row
dog. he doesn't call me kim. he callsç me mad dog. >> is there a reason you got the name? >> cool. >> does it have to do with fighting? >> undefeated in sports. >> go ahead and support the waiver? >> i think some will. some say they won't. i hope they do. this is not a fight i think they should pook. i think he's a reasonable choice. typically the president does get his choice of nominees, except for extreme cases and i can think of a few extreme cases that i would not support the nominee. this is not one that they should oppose. you have kristen gillibrand and a few others in the house but the reality is not that many. >> do you think they will announce any other nominations tonight? >> i'm hoping jon huntsman gets named as secretary of state. he's obviously not going to do it. >> look, i had this brainstorm a couple of weeks ago and it turns out huntsman talked to them about possibly becoming the
secretary of state and the more i think about it, and i've looked into huntsman's past. his family has been in the oil business, in the natural gas business, in the chemicals business for years, officer decadefor decades. he's a two-time governor and elected twice to one of the redder states of the country. >> he knows mandarin. >> yes. i just think -- i'm so happy. how is this, i know the campaign, the transition team watches this show. my two sense is that this would be an absolutely great pick. he brings everything that romney would have brought but without the never trump part of the romney/trump. >> do you have a comment of general mattis before we move on? >> forget about the waiver. they should change this law from
1947. it was ten years and they changed it to seven years because they realized something in the law, a crazy law. what is the reason for it? the idea that you want to be off the battlefield? >> civilian control of the military has long been -- >> it seems a little long to me. i think they should change the law. >> let's move on to something else because we had president obama today speaking about national security and he's repeatedly claimed that al qaeda's leadership has been destroyed but isis is waving victory flags in some places of the world. he was in tampa moments ago. >> for al qaeda, the organization that hit us on 9/11 is a shadow of its former self. its leadership has been decimated. it was never restricted to south asia, afghanistan or pakistan. even as al qaeda has been
decimated in afghanistan and pakistan, the threat in the middle east and most dangerously, we saw the emergence of isil. to say that we've made progress is not to say that the job is done. we know that a deadly threatç persists. >> the president also warns against aggressive interrogation techniques, including waterboarding. >> staying true to our traditions as a nation of laws, advances our security as well as our values. we prohibited torture everywhere at all times and that includes tactics like waterboarding and at no time has anybody who has worked with me told me that doing so has cost us good intelligence. despite all of the political rhetoric about the need to strip terrorists of their rights, our interrogation teams have obtained valuable information without resorting to torture. >> this is probably one of the
last addresses he'll give on national security and he's just going over some of that ground on waterboarding and trying to make -- i think he was trying to say obviously we didn't contain the terror threat because now you have isis to contend with. >> right. okay. so president obama was really not a big fan of the killer capture. he kind of loved the killing, to be honest with you, because he's ordered all of these predator drone strikes. no, he's not in favor of waterboarding, not in keeping them alive. when you don't utilize effective intelligence gathering techniques, you are then wasting an opportunity to be able to get intel, collect it to prevent future attacks. if you're just killing a rich target source like that, it dies with them. you are not going to be able to get other associates and other people working with them, other predictors about future terrorist attacks and that's a problem. so we've actually lost -- and if you talk to the intelligence officers, a lot of information
to be able to get that information. i think they need to put a focus back on that and you'll see that with general flynn and mattis in terms of advicising him to get back into the intelligence game. >> in 2013, president obama gave speeches saying al qaeda is decimated and we're moving on and then because of the vacuum in iraq, we now have isis metastasizing around the region. >> and what happens is, these killers, these islamic extremists, which he won't say, went from the taliban to al qaeda, from al qaeda now to isis and if you start to make your way into isis, they will m metastasize into another region. even though the intelligence came from a waterboarding session that led to the courier
that got bin laden, they wonder why they go from taliban to al qaeda to isis. you have to get the intel and then kill them. >> a very interesting sidenote, general mattis is against waterboarding. >> i think one thing that julia has said and michael flynn as well y. do we keep announcing what we would do or not do. just say we are a nation of law and everything that was done in the bush administration was ç lawful. do you think maybe there would be a different way to address terrorism and giving what kimberly was saying, not just kill but maybe kill -- capture so that we can get the intel? >> maybe. but first and foremost, yes, jen mattis is against or has always been against waterboarding and donald trump who had a brief conversation with him is now against waterboarding he announced a couple of weeks ago
when he met with i am had. what is fascinating, kimberly has a point, getting this information through waterboarding or hopefully other means. what's interesting to me is you have to put boots on the ground. it's a lot easier to kill a drone and not put our soldiers in harm's way and so we need to have an honest discussion. if we want to do that, we have to have an honest discussion which would involve many more troops on the ground in order to capture these people because a drone can't capture them and that's a discussion that i think president obama should have and president-elect trump has been loathed to have. it's a conversation we need to have about the appetite in the country that people need to have about putting more boots on the ground all over southeast asia, middle east and more potentially in places like europe. >> what you're going to do is have cia officers, special forces, special operators -- they are there already. they are all there. they are all there.
they are there right now. >> capture these killers on the battlefield, bring them back to guantanamo and then what? >> you interrogate them. >> so maybe mattis has a different idea. he says, we'll capture them, we won't close gitmo. there are other ways than waterboarding. >> mattis doesn't believe that you have to torture someone to get information out of them. >> you can define torture in many ways. >> one thing that wasn't talked about is many of the attacks, ft. hood, chattanooga, san bernardino, orlando. >> and the reason that we talk about waterboarding so much is that because it's right on the line. you talk about defining torture. we don't torture but right on the line was waterboarding. it's the most talked about thing. and how often did we do it? a couple of times and we will not shut up about waterboarding. no one is going to do it. it's off the table, basically.
now it's become a way -- >> hold on. >> there have been more u.s. soldiers and special forces and operators waterboarded than any of the enemy because in order to be in those groups, it's part of the training. >> i'm with you, kimberly. that's why it's either do it or not. but we've talked about -- >> then why talk about it? >> it's a way to signal, i'm against torture. president obama has never waterboarded but he's never talked about how he won't waterboard. >> he's torturing us in a whole other way. there's other interrogation techniques, like caterpillars on shoulders if they are afraid of bugs, loud music. >> god forbid the open hand slap. that's just awful. these people are blowing up and killing americans everywhere they can find us, orç westerne. coming up, president-elect trump announces a deal and what it means for the american worker. that's up next. what makes this simple salad the best simple salad ever?

business trump. president-elect trump securing more jobs for the american economy. a japanese company pledged $50 billion and 50,000 jobs to america. >> just agreed to invest $50 billion in the united states and 50,000 jobs. and he's one of the great men of industry so i just want to thank you very much. >> thank you, thank you, thank you. i said this is great. the united states, the u.s. will become great again. >> [ inaudible ]? >> what exactly are you committing to? >> invest in a startup company in the united states. >> how many jobs do you believe you can create? >> 50,000 jobs. we will invest $50 billion. >> he went on to say that he's investing in america because trump won the election.
that will put 50,000 americans back to work. you can get upset for me for saying this but it's exactly what i've been saying for 18 months. the businessman who knows how to negotiate deals is just what america has needed for a very long time. now, let's sit back and watch the liberal posse twist itself into knots over this and we'll start with you, julia. >> you must be happy when you see a japanese firm pledging $50 billion that they didn't have to do. >> i was super happy about that in october when they announced this deal. they announced it in october, which was before the election. i was very happy that they are now upping this commitment from 25 to 50. >> from 25 to 50. >> in october they said they could do potentially as much as 100 so they are doing half of that. >> wait. let's be honest. they said with saudi arabia -- >> arabia was doing 25 and they were doing 25 so it's now up to possibly 95 billion.
>> not from them. >> that's the knot. >> listen, i hope you're right. it's like you're sitting here thinking i'm rooting against this. i hope you're right. i hope what this gentleman said is accurate. i truly hope that's true. i just happen to believe that we have to look at the statistics ç here. carrier may have saved 800 jobs. >> 1100. >> 300 were never going to leave. but 700 are going to mexico. you can pick and choose these different corporations. you have to create an environment that he's going to create to bring more jobs in. when and if that happens, i will be the first to stand up here and applaud. >> promise? >> absolutely. >> k.t., he's still president-elect. >> correct. that is accurate. the point is, he's made a promise. there's a movement across the country. i believe he's trying to honor that promise. guess what, everybody should be
happy. liberals, republicans, greeners, health food addicts, all of them. you want jobs. you want the economy to do well and for families to be able to provide and get us back on the right track. these are all very positive developments and i do believe and hope that he's going to continue with this direction and this focus because this is one of the things with all of the exit polls and focus groups, they favored them with respect to the economy and putting back infrastructure, jobs, not exporting jobs and manufacturing out of this country but making sure that we are bringing goods and riches from this country and sending them to other countries so why not make it here. >> dana, you know what today is? one month. one month since the election and we have three companies who said they are either leaving jobs here or another group -- >> i do think there's a little bit of truth to what julia is saying when you look at the fine print but overall, yes. and i've been on the book tour, i've been to california, texas,
wyoming, california, florida, alabama and just across the board, business men and women are feeling a lot more optimistic about the future of the economy. even in the agri business, i was talking to eric earlier, regulations like the waters of the united states, the whole bill asking farmers to run a marathon with 20-pound weights on their ankles, i think that will probably be done which is a good thing. an overall feeling of optimism and regulatory relief. but the united states is a great place to invest. i was reminded of a west wing episode, the actual tv show. remember the staff comes in and they say president bartlett, we want to come in and say hi to you. no, they don't. they want to come in and shake your hand and say hi. no, they want something. what this company is favorable treatment and a blessing of the trump -- i'm sorry. the t-mobile/sprint merger and
they might deserve it. they might get it. but under president obama, it was like, that's not going to happen. so i think that there are other reasons for business men to go visit donald trump at this point as he starts to set up his government so that there's signals sent about what sort of relief they are looking for. >> and maybe they also think he's one of us. he will understand a business dynamic. >> yeah. >> tom, would you like this one or the boeing deal that i'm about to read right now? >> let's talk boeing. >> the president-elect rattled some cages today. earlier he took a shot across the bow of every companyç sellg their stuff to america. we're not an easy market anymore. mr. trump warned boeing he wasn't thrilled about spending $4 billion on a new set of air force ones and twos. >> the plane is totally out of control. it's going to be over $4 billion for air force one program. and i think it's ridiculous. i think boeing is doing a little bit of a number.
we want boeing to make a lot of money but not that much money. >> in essence, he was saying, contractors, all of you, not just boeing, we're looking to bill before we pay from now on and guess what happens when you look at the bill before you pay, sometimes you catch people trying to rip you off. >> he has a great way of complimenting and attacking someone in the same statement. he wants them to make money, just not that much money. companies now, they have entire departments, compliance. you know, when there's federal regulations, you have an office of compliance because they have to figure out what this stuff is. there's going to have to be offices about how to respond to trump when he attacks your company. they are going to have to know what to do because they can turn it to their advantage if they know how to deal with him. i like what is going on. it's interesting. >> boy, i've got to tell you, if this were a democrat doing this, people would be screaming about picking winners and losers and going after some companies and rewarding others. >> all he's trying to say is
let's figure out how much we pay for an air plan. >> he ought to know. he came up with a price tag which boeing said they have no idea where he came up with that number. >> it's 4 billion. but boeing said they have a $170 million contract. do you really think we'll get two brand-new air force ones for 170? >> he came up with a number that apparently doesn't exist. >> i think the actual number is 2 or $3 billion. >> he's picking winners and losers and like with the carrier deal, if a democrat did this, you would be up in arms. >> i would be thrilled if they said it costs too much. >> i'm sorry, but overpaying is not sexy. why should we overpay for something? why not get a good deal. >> come on. >> julie brings up a very good point. today we found out or someone released a study that there's somewhere around $125 billion of
overpayment in the pentagon. is this something that the pentagon should worry about maybe getting some of that budget pulled back or diverted somewhere else? >> there's a lot of complaints about overspending at the defense department and it was 25 billion over five years or something, that's how they got to the $125 million park. yeah, you can find some ways to cut and i think the military is the first to say that and there's been -- presidents try and i actually think president trump, from that moment, from the first day with general mattis, if he's able to become the secretary, then, yeah, he'll know where to do that. on the boeing thing, if i could say a couple of things, the contract is there for them to do the design. the reason that it is expensive, boeing doesn't even make money on theç plane. it's prestige that they make the air force one. the technology -- when president bush on 9/11 had to fly around the country and lost all communication, could not
communicate with people, air force one needs to be able to withstand a nuclear attack. and he is the most important person in the world or she will be whenever there is a woman president. he has to be able to withstand that and you have to have communications back to the ground and also why it's secretive, we don't want other companies to know. i would just wait a couple minutes, get a briefing and then you can trash a company. >> all right. we'll leave it right there. when we come back, is the west finally ready to crack down radical islam? two major developments today in the fight against terror coming up. i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems.
breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com.
this is your daughter. and she just got this. ooh boy. but, you've got hum. so you can set this. and if she drives like this, you can tell her to drive more like this. because you'll get this. you can even set boundaries for so if she should be here, but instead goes here, here, or here. you'll know. so don't worry, mom. because you put this, in here. hum by verizon. the technology designed to make your car smarter, safer and more connected. put some smarts in your car. is the west finally ready to crack down on the culture of radical islamist extremism?
angela merkel who opened the door to 1 million mostly migrant muslims is calling for a ban on full-face veils mainly worn by women. facebook, microsoft and youtube are teaming up to identify and remove violent terror content from their websites by creating a shared database. this is quite fascinating from communications and technology perspective, they are actually working in concert together to combat terror, at least that's what they say. >> so it's no time like the present, guys. we've been waiting. attacks that happened here in the united states, they were communicating with each other and like the osu guy last week. >> we would love that. >> a group advocating for this kind of cooperation for a long time, this sounds like a good
thing but the proof will be in the pudding and let's see if they do something about it. given germany's history and social nature of its politics, i can understand why merkel was so -- she wants to run for re-election and knows she will not win if she doesn't do somethingç strong. also, islamaphobia is increased by this problem and women living in western countries that are made or decide to wear a full burka are not able to take advantage of the freedoms in the west. if one of us were going to saudi arabia, they would force us to wear a long robe in public and i don't think that it is unreasonable to ask for the muslim community to comply with these requests and if they don't like it, they can return and live in the middle east.
>> eric, back in the day, angela merkel was of the belief that everyone should be able to live in their own values and customs. this seems to be a departure from that. also, because of the recent assaults, criminal activity, rapes of children, large number of horrible stories coming out of germany and what's happened there with the muslim migrant community committing these kinds of atrocities. she's getting a lot of backlash. do you think this will help? >> i think it will help her get re-elected. that's the only reason she's doing this. she had this -- she's pushed back on the burqa ban for years and now all of a sudden she wants to embrace it. the people of germany and throughout europe have taken all of these refugees and they are seeing spikes in crime against
women they are feeling the backlash. you have more than a million that are welcome in germany alone and then being able to travel freely between the countries. they really -- i think dana is right, it has a lot to do with the election but they need to stop now, like right now. >> yeah. >> it's something we've been warning about over here for years. boy, with socially and culturally, if we're going to look to europe for our future, let's use that as an experiment and say don't do that here. >> and in the uk with the brexit passing there, there's a lot going on here and they were able to move freely and we saw that with the attacks in paris, they were able to leave the scene of
the crime. >> look, i can't speak to germany's laws. you're absolutely right it's because she was up for election last year. she's facing a challenge she hasn't faced in a long time. boy, i'm not going to talk about germany but i am personally and i understand the concern and the horror people have with the burka. having said that, i'm very uncomfortable with the government telling people what they can and cannot do. i get -- listen, iç understand. but what i'm saying fundamentally is and it's a slippery slope. i think the slippery slope, telling people how to worship in their own way, live and let live -- >> and men who want to commit
acts of terror shouldn't dress up in burkas. >> i get it. >> just don't cover your face. i'm so sun sensitive, my swim wear -- >> oh, my god. this is too much. this is too much for me to take right now. ahead, a stunning reversal after the editor of the "new york times" slams trump's liberal bias. what she's saying today after facing backlash.
president-elect trump. >> i think it's outrageous. i think that should not be -- they shouldn't be tweeted and it does concern me that that would be -- that that would be -- i mean, everyone is going to have their personal and political views. we all do. but they ought to be personal and if you sign up to be a journalist, then that's what you ought to be. >> now spayd is walking back her remarks, telling politico, quote, in receipt ttrospect, i have held back more. but i stand by my view, that journalists should be careful, sometimes more careful than they are with what they say to the media. dana, do you think this is overblown? >> one, i admire her for going on tucker's show. it's not for the faint of heart. he's tough. it's a great new program. i do think twitter gets a lot of people into trouble for different reasons.
we've seen people have to resign. remember the pr executive that tweeted something that she thought was funny. one thing that happened going back maybe ten years or so is that all of a su den in newspapers, would you have actual journalists that sat in the white house briefing room or elsewhere, the ones that i dealt with there, and then all of a sudden on a saturday or sunday, they would have a longer piece on the front page of the paper and it would be labeled "analysis." and i would say, so am i talking to you john doe the reporter or the analyst? i need to know so we know what we're dealing with here and twitter has basically blown the doors off of that. she's right, if you want to be a journalist, there are ways that you can participate on twitter by tweeting facts and keeping your opinion to yourself. >> well, it's interesting, k.g., because i'm going to read a tweet from one new york times reporter who said, pardon me for asking but what qualifies jared kushner to have a seat at the
presidential table? i'm not really a journalist. i'm paid to give my opinion. but this journalist is actually a journalist. so to me i happen to agree with him but i think it's somewhat out of line to say that about jared. >> i don't know his qualifications. >> it's not that i don't like him, i just don't think he's qualified to sit in the white house by virtue he's never worked in government. >> trump has never worked in government and he was elected president. >> that's true. he was and elected by the majority. >> based on that, what i'll do is compliment tucker carlson. i think it's fantastic, somebody having the courage to call him out like this and show him, here's the proof in the pudding, here's what the evidence is, what the tweets are. they are biased. they are not proper journalism. what we do here, we discuss news of the day. so she answered honestly. now she's trying to walk it back
to this problematic but really they need to take a good look at themselves and say, wait a second, we have a problem here. there was a concerted effort to undermine the candidate seat and a large number of resources and reporters to try to tear them down but people were thinking, relying on a variety of different sources to be able to get their information. it makes for great television. >> what is interesting, eric, she did walk it back. margaret sullivan, hailed by everybody as a good public editor, she probably would not have walked it back. listen, i'm surprised -- to me -- >> you just read one tweet. tuck tucker read a bunch of tweets and spayd was correct in pushing back. we have reporters, journalists and we have opinion people. there is a line. fox has them, too. and there is a line. but the problem is that she
walked her own criticism back. >> that's what i don't get. >> can i do one thing -- you're pro-israel, right? >> i am pro-israel. >> you listen to donald trump's apec speech. fantastic, right? >> i did. >> you know who advised him? >> i'm not sure but maybe jared kushner. >> he's very involved. >> you're saying he's capable of creating -- >>ç qualifications to be in th oval office or to be in the west wing at times i think jared kushner certainly rings that bell. >> okay. tom, liz spayd, should she walk it back? >> the tweets were outrageous but the tweets are not the problem. take the word objective off the front of their title. they are not objective journalists. that's fine. tucker knows that. >> tucker's show is weeknight at
7:00 p.m. >> some people are having a tough time dealing with president-elect trump. is it time for them to just get over it? the latest from lebron james and madonna when "the five" returns. s of protein. and look where life can take you! boost®. be up for it.™ [and her new business: i do, to jeanetgo. jeanette was excellent at marrying people. but had trouble getting paid. not a good time, jeanette. even worse. now i'm uncomfortable. but here's the good news, jeanette got quickbooks. send that invoice, jeanette. looks like they viewed it. and, ta-da! paid twice as fast. oh, she's an efficient officiant. way to grow, jeanette. get paid twice as fast. visit quickbooks-dot-com.

some really rich celebrities are having a tough time dealing with president-elect trump winning the election. lebron james and cavalier teammates have decided they are not staying at the trump-owned hotel when they play against the knicks tomorrow. you may recall, james endorsed hillary clinton during the campaign. and madonna tells billboard magazine she feels betrayed by women who voted for trump and when trump won, it felt like someone died. wow, that's an exaggeration. >> wow. "like a virgin" tour. >> a bit of a stretch. >> is it a betrayal of women?
>> i was invited to this in miami on friday night. i did not attend and i'm glad because my ears might have been bleeding. but a lot of people that i know, liberal, democrats, people even liberal, democrats, who did attend, said they were put off by it, too much, over the top and kind of defeating the purpose of what the event was supposed to be like, more about her whining ther putting it upon everything else. then also her comments. really i think it's very dism s dismissive, upsetting to me to say what's wrong with women? women don't like women? women love women. women love each other. we're very supportive to one another. please don't try to speak for all the women out there, madonna, because we got it covered. maybe you need to grow up a little bit. >> how about for the guys, eric? lebron doesn't want to stay at trump hotel. >> first of all, i still have the first-class ticket to anyone who wants to leave the country since donald trump was elected for any celebrity, one-way on me. lebron makes $45 million last
year, mag $76ç million last ye. trump's top marginal tax rate is 6 .6% lower than the current marginal top rate, she'll have were 5 million more to donate to the cause of her choice and lebron $3 million more, beyonce, $53 million. katy perry -- they have a lot more money to donate to causes. >> her event was about malawi, great to make it about her. >> are they going to get it out of their system by the time he takes office? >> i don't have the math, they're going to love donald trump's tax plans and not going to complain about it. free market exercise, if they don't want to stay at a trump-owned hotel, fine, do whatever you want to do. the thing with madonna, more of the same liberals trying to explain the election in a way, they're trying to find anything they can except for blaming themselves on a poorly run cam wane wi campaign with a candidate that did not inspire others.
>> they're blaming this on women. women voted, a lot voted in support of president-elect trump. deal with it. this is a democracy. people can make choices for themselves. >> julie, you stayed at a trump hotel, right? >> no, never. no, i never will. like lebron james, i will not. i will vote with my pocketbook. that's my right. that's lebron james' right. i don't see why anyone should have a problem with that. >> wonderful.
